People and Places: Photographs from the Collection

Jul. 25-Aug. 23, 2015
Boca Raton Museum of Art

Some of the most illustrious sights and characters of the 19th and 20th centuries will be within reach this summer as the Boca Raton Museum of Art presents People and Places: Photographs from the Collection. Two first floor galleries will be dedicated to prints of some of the most recognizable icons of the modern era, captured by masters of the art.

The Museum’s permanent photography collection includes more than 1,500 images from several significant photographers, including Henry Fox Talbot, Edward Steichen, Robert Doisneau, Sebastião Selgado, Margaret Bourke-White, and more. Although the collection spans continents and categories, this summer’s exhibition pares down the works to showcase subjects of celebrity, including famous locations and stars of the silver screen.
